Well week 2 of baby watch has concluded with STILL NO BABY! The positive news is that although she is now in hospital until bub arrives, Tiff is now officially full term (a milestone I seem to fall short of!)
Last Sunday Tiff and I took the boys to Echuca for the morning. It bought back a lot of memories, we used to spend EVERY SINGLE WEEKEND their as kids visiting our grandparents. I was planning to take Liam on a paddle steamer ride, but decided an hour long cruise was just TOO long for an on the go toddler. Instead we went on a horse and carriage ride which he LOVED….
We also went back to Little People’s Art and did some more painting. Liam chose to paint a Lion this time (when I say chose I was showing him what he could paint and he roared when I said Lion), although he got distracted playing with the trains and I ended up painting most of it, he added the final touches to our masterpiece!
Liam is being very affectionate to his little brother at the moment – he can sometimes be a little too enthusiastic though…
We’ve had a lovely time catching up with friends this week. I’m very lucky to have a great group of friends, some of which I’ve known for 20 + years and although we haven’t seen each other since we were last home 10 months ago, when we catch up it’s like no time has passed. Catching up with everyone is also a great excuse to have a lot of coffee dates!
On Friday Aiden was Four Months old! Our little man has come so far, doubling his birthweight already and really interacting with us now. Luckily I packed the Milestone Cards from Little me Little you. I love them and just wish I had discovered them earlier and could have used them for Liam as well.
I’m pleased to say I’ve completed my 3/4 year resolutions this week. This morning I was able to run 2.8km before I had to stop in case I passed out. Super excited about this achievement, as I’ve never been much of a runner. My goal is to be able to run the 5k Mothers Day Classic next year.
It’s been over 9 years since I moved to Queensland and i think I’d forgotten how seriously Victorians take their football. Aiden and I went into the shops earlier this afternoon and it was like a ghost town with everyone watching the footy. There were even a heap of stores that had closed early so their staff could watch the footy.
I hope you have all had a great week xx
